One of the best zoos in the world. Yound and old will enjoy the visit even if zoos are not normally your thing.

“Natural Habitat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The animals are well cared for in environments that seem natural to their species. The interactions with the people blur the distinctions between who is on what side of the observation platforms. Well done facility.

“Great (and very full) day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is the best zoo I have ever seen. A wide mix of animals ranging from insects to elephants, all in "natural" habitats, with as few fences as possible, and plenty of space to roam. Some memorable moments were the magnificent white tigers demonstrating that some cats are very much at home in the water, an orang utan displaying his displeasure at the rain by wearing a sack just like an old man with his cardigan, other primates socialising over food and babies.
The place is well organised into areas so that you can see a selection of animals from a climatic or geographic region, with plenty of paths snaking between them. The courtesy bus gets you right to the animals if your walking ability is not what it could be, and the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable.
This is a great day out, with or without children. It isn't cheap, but it's good value, especially if you arrive early and depart late.
Plenty of eating opportunities, good bus services and plenty of taxis. No excuses - DO IT!

“Breakfast without Orangutans”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We booked a tour for breakfast with Orangutans. It was a big dissapointment that there is no interaction at all between visitors and the monkeys. They are sitting on a platform, get their food from the caretakers and just concentrate on eating. They are not in the least interested in all the visitors posing in front of them for a photo. Ok you can get close to them, but they are not even looking at you.
The rest of the zoo was great. Loved the bird show.
